There are no parasites on Twitter.

We're all thinking it.  None of you have to say it.

I bet she's fun at parties. Typical speed date:

Him: "So, what do you do?"
Her: "I study parasitic fungi that drill into the gentials of millipedes."
Him: "...um, OK."
Her: "I even discovered a new one. I looked at some pictures on Twitter, then I went back to the Natural History Museum - they let me in there, regular-like - and rifled through their dead millipedes 'till I found more."
Him: "Got it. Next..."
Her: "You wanna hear how it works? See, it's got this special suction appendage that it pokes through..."
Him: "Next!"
Her: "...that millipede's crotch, and then it just sucks nutrition while the other half of it - which looks like a larva - sits outside..."
Him: "NEXT!"
Her: "...I got pictures right here. Wanna see 'em?"
Him: "SECURITY!"
Her: "Yeah, swipe left on that one... yeah, this one! I like this one, 'cause it looks a little like Andy Rooney."
Him: *flees screaming*

Meh.  Does she put out?  That's the only important question that needs answering.
